Have you ever heard of a beauty breakfast as the key for a beautiful skin?
We all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, which is the reason why carefully selecting the foods you eat in the morning is crucial. A breakfast with protein and healthy fats provides you with long lasting energy in the morning. At the same time you should avoid to eat sugar, fructose, refined grains and grains with a lot of gluten.
Foods that Make your Skin Glow
Here are our recommendation of foods that will make your skin glow. We recommend a portion of protein from the following ingredients:
- Nuts like walnuts, pine nuts and almonds
- Vegan cheeses
- Vegetable spreads
- Legumes like lentils and chickpeas in small quantities
- Eggs: organic or free range (number 0 or 1)
- Goat and sheep cheese (also cow cheese, if it’s a good quality, organic cheese and if you are not cow lactose intolerant)
- Roquefort (it’s a great source of B12, especially if you don’t eat meat)
- Ham from organic agriculture
- Fermented milk like kefir and yoghurt
- Small fish such as sardines or anchovies
- Organic butter
Combine it with a small piece of organic whole grain bread made from sour dough. Ancient grains such as spelt, kamut or rye have less gluten and are easier to digest. You can also have a beverage without sugar – coffee, tea, vegetable milk (use stevia from the health food store or coconut sugar to sweeten).
You can also have a fresh fruit, but do avoid juices, especially fruit juices, in the morning.
Food for your Skin
Taking care of your skin begins from the inside out, which is why we talk about foods for your skin. A breakfast low in sugar and fructose, and with the right Omega 3 and 6 balance will provide your body with the optimal nutrients as well as food for your skin.
When we say “foods for your skin”; we are referring to foods that can directly contribute to your skin’s health and appearance. The foods that you consume, particularly at the start of the day, can have a profound effect on your skin. The good fats play a crucial role in skin health, helping to maintain a balanced acid mantle of the skin, which is essential for keeping skin hydrated, plump and glowing.
In conclusion, a beauty breakfast that includes foods rich in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals is a proactive approach to maintaining a healthy lifestyle while simultaneously nurturing your skin’s natural glow.
Embrace this nutrient-rich morning meal for an energised and revitalised start to each day, for your body and your skin to thrive.
